Are you happy? Are you living your best life? WHY?

Discover the Japanese secret to living a life of passion, purpose, and deep satisfaction. 


"What is My Why?" offers a framework, based on the Okinawan concept of Ikigai, to clarify your "reason for being." Ikigai comprises four elements, what you love, what you're good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for.  


With practical guidance, planners, examples, and exercises, this book helps you clarify your purpose and create a personal action plan to start living your most meaningful life, right now.
